Kevin Harvick dominates Vegas for back-to-back NASCAR wins

(AP Photo/Isaac Brekken)LAS VEGAS — From his dynamic opening laps to his comfortable cruise to the checkered flag, Kevin Harvick was the safest bet in Sin City this weekend.Harvick’s air of inevitability increased with each lap around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, and the rest of the NASCAR Cup field must be a bit worried about how they’re going to catch up this year.ADVERTISEMENT Harvick led 144 of the first 160 laps and comfortably won the first two stages. He was fourth out of the end-of-stage caution after Stage 2, with Joey Logano getting in front with an exceptional pit stop.But Harvick reclaimed the lead off another restart with 73 laps to go after Kurt Busch wrecked along with Chase Elliott. Harvick emerged from his last pit stop with a three-second lead on Brad Keselowski, and Busch couldn’t catch up.Here are more things to know about the race on the Strip:DOING RECON: For the first time, NASCAR is returning to Vegas in the fall for a second race, which will also be the playoff opener. Teams used this trip to gather data and information for the return trip in September, although the temperature could easily be 50 degrees higher than the balmy 53 degrees at Sunday’s race. “The adjustments we made today are going to help in the fall,” Kyle Busch said. “(Although) I think the track is going to be a lot slower with the heat.”KUBU CAN’T DO: Kurt Busch’s career-long victory drought in his hometown continues. Busch lost control and ran Elliott into the wall shortly after a restart early in the final stage. The crash necessitated a long caution for fluid cleanup. The 39-year-old Busch has never won at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which was built while he grew up in town. Kurt Busch failed to win the Cup race in Vegas for the 17th time. He has started on the pole twice, but has only one top-five finish here despite calling it a top priority in his career.WINNING BIG: Harvick was even more dominant in Vegas than Truex was last year. Truex led all three stages and 150 laps last year on his way to a victory that propelled him into his championship season.THREE STRIKES: The car chiefs for Jimmie Johnson and Ross Chastain were ejected after their cars failed inspection three times during the pre-race checks. Johnson had to start at the back after his chief, Jesse Saunders, got the gate. Johnson also will have practice time taken away next week in Phoenix. The seven-time champion still rallied to finish 12th.COMEBACK STORY: Josh Frankos, the tire-changer on Darrell Wallace Jr.’s Richard Petty Motorsports team, injured his hand while preparing for the Vegas race and was sent to a hospital on Sunday morning. Michael Hubert filled in for him on pit road. The injury couldn’t keep Frankos down, however: He returned to the track for the race.

Kyle Larson finished third after winning the Xfinity Series race on Saturday, while defending champion Martin Truex Jr. was in fourth and pole-sitter Ryan Blaney in fifth.Harvick has already matched his Cup win total from last season in three races — and he’s headed to Phoenix, where he has won five times since 2012.Harvick also took a moment to savor a milestone. Only Richard Petty, Kyle Busch and David Pearson have won more races across the three national circuits than Harvick, the 42-year-old Californian with plenty of good years left on his tires.“It’s been a lot of years accumulated with a lot of great race teams and people and situations,” Harvick said. “When you tag that triple-digit number to it, it really lets you realize that you’ve been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things.”Not many wins are more emphatic than Harvick’s 100th.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Reinventing Wade: At 36, another new role awaits Heat great Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina View commentslast_img read more

My worst time? This is not even close, says beaten Sharapova

first_imgThose traumatic days have long since given way to one of sport’s most powerful rags-to-riches stories which has seen Sharapova earn a personal fortune estimated to be in the region of $200 million.But despite her sense of perspective on Monday’s defeat, there remain question marks over whether or not Sharapova will ever return to the peak of her powers.The last of her five Grand Slam titles came at Roland Garros in 2014 with the period since interrupted by a 14-month doping ban.She made the fourth round at the US Open last year in her first Slam since her return, the third round in Australia in January and quarter-finals in Paris before a first round exit at Wimbledon in July.That loss to Vitalia Diatchenko, the world number 132 at the time, at the All England Club was her first opening round Wimbledon defeat and earliest Grand Slam exit in eight years.ADVERTISEMENT “What’s challenging is when you’re a teenager and you have a few hundred dollars and you’ve got no sense of the future, you don’t know where you’re going to end up. You just have a dream,” said Sharapova.“I think that’s a lot tougher than being 31 years old and having the opportunity to do whatever I want in my life.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Sharapova, speaking after losing 6-4, 6-3 to Carla Suarez Navarro on Monday, was referring to the time when at seven years old, she left Russia for Florida.She and father Yuri spoke no English when they arrived in the United States while visa restrictions prevented the young Sharapova from seeing her mother Yelena for two years. Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum On Monday, Sharapova was attempting to reach the quarter-finals in New York for the first time since 2012.But she ran into an inspired Suarez Navarro who marked her 30th birthday with a second win in five meetings against the Russian.The defeat was also Sharapova’s first in 23 matches played under the Flushing Meadows lights — 22 of those on the showpiece Arthur Ashe Stadium.‘I’ve done plenty’She is adamant that her best days are still ahead of her.However, her performances at the US Open this year exposed serious flaws.In her four matches, she served up 32 double faults and dropped serve 15 times.She carved out a tournament-leading 49 break points but converted only 21, a success rate of 43 percent.Her bitterest rival Serena Williams, after four rounds, has just nine double faults and has been broken only three times.The American has a 62 percent conversion rate on break points at 18 of 29. “If I didn’t have the belief to keep doing this and to keep having the motivation and the grind of doing this every day in order to get myself in these positions, I don’t think I would be here,” said Sharapova.“I think I’ve done plenty in my career, established a lot for myself personally, professionally.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Federer stunned by 55th-ranked Millman in US Open 4th Round Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
